Haylock proves a handful in big Genclik victory, while Smith and Jarvis both net four for Dynamo in 11-1 win over Charing Reserves.

Bodkin Challenge Cup- Second Round

James Haylock-Ashdown opened his goal account for new club Ashford Genclik in style as the young forward scored five times in their 11-0 home win against Division One side Lydd Grasshoppers to progress through to the quarter finals of the Bodkin Cup. Haylock-Ashdown joined the newly promoted Premier Division team only last month and made an instant impact netting a handful of goals to put Genclik in the hat for the draw for the last-eight of the competition. Alfie Draper weighed in adding two more for the home side, while further goals from Dion Orris, Antonio Comparetto, Max Sarigul and midfielder Scott Bradley completed the scoring, with goalkeeper and recent signing Stefan Lawrence earning a clean sheet for Emin Yalcin’s exciting side.


In-form Division One team Charing caused an upset as they beat Sandgate Saint-Germain 2-1 at home to maintain their 100% winning start to the new season. Bill Almond opened the scoring to give Charing the lead with a neat finish at the near post, but Sandgate’s top goal scorer Michael Yianni soon levelled as the visitors deservedly grabbed an equaliser. Premier Division side Sandgate continued to press for a second but were denied with Charing goalkeeper Luke Littlewood-Tribe in fine form between the sticks for Lee Woods’ troops, and the introduction of both Pat Hughes and James Fraser from the bench in the second half saw Charing dominate and go on to grab a winner from Joe Sullivan’s second half spot kick after Fraser had been bundled over in the box.

Cheriton AFC needed penalties to scrape through to the last-eight as they got the better of Division One rivals and neighbours Golden Arrow following their 2-2 draw after the full 90 minutes at The Stadium. Cheriton scored through Ryan Hall and Ben Ashton in normal time only to see Golden Arrow level things up thanks to strikes from Stuart Thompson and Ryan Warren, before Cheriton prevailed 4-2 on penalties to progress to the quarter finals.

An outstanding performance from South Willesborough goalkeeper Tom Moon wasn’t enough for the Division One side as they were bravely knocked out losing 2-0 away at Premier Division Brewmaster in their second-round clash at Hopes Grove. Moon saved a second-minute penalty from Jack Goldsmith as the Frogs soaked up the pressure in the first half until Brewmaster finally grabbed the opening goal when returning veteran forward Chris Gillam was put through by Clive Bates to score on his first appearance for the hosts for three-years. Josh Squires-Quinn doubled the Brews’ lead midway through the second half when he headed in from Goldsmith’s corner before the hosts saw out the game despite South Willesborough going close late on.

Craig Haynes claimed the match ball scoring a hat-trick as Red Heathens earned their first victory in all competitions this season beating Division One side Horsebox Bars 5-1 away from home. Haynes’ treble set the visitors on their way before strike partner Artsoms Andrejevs added two more for the visitors to safely send Dan Goodsell’s side through and cancel out Joe Quigley’s effort for Horsebox.

 

Premier Division

AFC Locomotive moved three-points clear at the top of the Premier Division league table with a comfortable 7-1 home victory against Aldington. Loco’ proved too strong for their newly promoted visitors as Luke Burdon scored twice in the opening 10 minutes to put Gary Gibbs’ side into an early two-goal lead. Carlum Macleod then made it 3-0 with a well taken free kick midway through the first half before Burdon grabbed his third and Loco’s fourth goal of the morning just after the restart to all but seal the victory. Aldington pulled a goal back courtesy of an own goal from Loco defender Jamie Hurst, but Hurst had the chance to immediately atone for his error scoring the home sides fifth, before further goals from substitute Ryan Carter and Casper Floyd, who then went on to receive a late red card, completed the scoring.

Two goals from Lewis Bagshaw ensured visitors Stanhope & Beaver Rangers claimed a share of the spoils as they came away from their trip to Mersham Sports Club with a point in a 2-2 draw. Bagshaw opened the scoring for Rangers before Mersham hit back to go in front thanks to Steve Tanner’s excellent free kick and a spot kick from Tom Wilson. But Bagshaw struck again in the second half to level up the game to help Rangers move up two places in the standings to fifth.

 

Division One

Tony Dunham netted five goals as Sellindge earned the local bragging rights and moved three points clear at the top of the Division One standings with an impressive 7-2 victory against tenants Folkestone United at Swan Lane. Dunham, now in his fourth season for Sellindge, has scored 71 goals for the Swans since his arrival from Shepway Spartans in 2017, and added another five to his tally following an impressive individual performance. Further goals from Ben Kesby and top goal scorer Liam Middleton sealed the derby victory and cancel out strikes from Ryan Lowe and Ryan Jordan for United, who remain rooted to the foot of the table without a point form their opening four league fixtures this season.

 

Division Two

Division Two leaders Hythe Athletic made it four wins from four games this season as they beat Burton Grove 3-0 at South Road to maintain their unbeaten start to their league campaign. Sam Ewins opened the scoring for Athletic with a fantastic effort on the half-volley to give the hosts a 1-0 half time lead as Hythe’s high press prevented Burton Grove from getting a reply. Sam Puxley added a second goal to make it 2-0 with 20 minutes left before the hosts were reduced to ten men when Jacob Haywood was given his marching orders, but that didn’t prevent Puxley from adding a late third with a neat finish inside the penalty area to seal all three points.

Hot on their heels are Troggs who also picked up their fourth successive league victory this season beating Fox Sunday 2-1 away from home. Two strikes from the prolific Ben Allen took his goal tally for the season into double figures as they took a 2-1 lead into half time as former Kennington youngster Callum O’Neill replied for the hosts. The second half was an even affair that saw many chances created by both teams without either team managing to add to the score line as Troggs saw out the game to maintain their 100% winning start to the campaign.

Goals from Dean Clark and former Bromley Green midfielder Cameron Lumsden earned Appledore all three points as they returned from their trip to Park Farm Rangers 2-1 winners. The Smugglers moved up to fifth place in the table with this victory and are only behind their hosts on goals scored in the standings and level on points, Daniel Marshall netting Rangers’ goal with his fourth strike of the season.

Egerton claimed their first league victory at the fourth time of asking in some style as they thrashed bottom of the table Ashford Spartans 9-1 at Rock Hill Road to move up three places in the league standings to seventh. Strike pair Matt Moon and Bradley Freund were left to fight over the match ball as both scored hat-tricks for the villagers in their impressive victory, with the goal scoring completed with further strikes from Matt Wright, Owen Clark and Joshua Jones. Spartans continue their search for a first point this season but did grab a consolation goal scored by long serving midfielder Liam Edmonds.

Top goal scorer Kieran Funnell netted a hat-trick as Biddenden earned their first win of the season returning from their trip to FC Folkestone 4-2 winners. Funnell’s treble proved the difference between the two teams as he eclipsed his goal tally from last season scoring his seventh of the campaign, while teeanager James Nuttall added the visitors fourth goal. FC Folkestone replied with their goals coming from Ieuan Jones and Connor Hills but fell to a second league defeat of the season dropping down to eighth place in the process.

 

Division Three

Ashford Dynamo proved too strong for visitors Charing Reserves as they romped home to an 11-1 victory at Sandyacres to move up to second place in the Division Three table (pictured above). Calvin Smith and Matt Jarvis both scored four times for Brad Sharpe’s side as they stretched their unbeaten start to life back in the league to three games thanks to an outstanding team performance. Further goals from Lewis Taylor, Courtney O’Brien and Ashley Slingsby completed the rout cancelling out Adam Kitts sole consolation for Charing who have now conceded 27 goals from their opening four league fixtures this season.

They are still playing catch up on leaders Folkestone United Reserves who moved to the top of the standings with a 5-1 away victory at Waterside. Two goals from Ben Parker and individual strikes from Ashley Sales, Tom Etherington and Alan Reed saw United romp home to take all three points at the Spearpoint despite Will Weir pulling a goal back for the hosts who suffered a third defeat in four games this season.

Sam Ades scored twice as Bromley Green moved up to fifth place in the league standings with a 3-1 victory away at Pilgrims. George Mabb added a third for the visitors to seal the victory as Pilgrims replied through Brett Moncrieff scoring his first Sunday League goal for six years.

Singleton Barn moved to within a point of the top-two teams in the division in a tightly contested 1-0 home victory against Mersham Sports Reserves at the Spearpoint. Ricky Harden grabbed the only goal of the game as home goalkeeper Anton Lockwood went on to earn a well-deserved clean sheet to see Neil Hemstead’s side pick up maximum points for the second time this season.
